  1. It is not the same amount of points. 1% and skim are the same. Weight Watchers has devised a flexible program, there are no foods that off-limits. Members need to accept responsibility for eating the foods that they like and that meet their RDA requirements. Just my two-cents worth!
  2. WWannie, on page 19 of the Getting Started Booklet is lists Calcium-Rich Foods and says whether or not they equal a milk serving. Hard or semi-soft, any type, 1 1/2 oz is calcium rich and counts as a milk serving!! (And, it tastes GR8!) jj
  3. Cooking wine is salted. You may need to adjust your seasoning if you use it. Personally, I never cook with any wine that I would not drink. If you don't have the red wine, you could substitute white wine, broth, apple juice, or even water. Some cooking wines have a strong acid-like flavor. jj
  4. Debra, look in your Getting Started booklet for the foods that count as a dairy. They are marked with an asterik. Just because a food is high in calcium does not make it a milk product. Calcium is good for us, but there are other important nutrients in true dairy products.

  6. Suzi Q, I bumped this recipe up down on the Dessert board. The original recipe was in the WW Magazine. jj
  7. Could it be that we are just getting used to drinking water. What seemed like a chore when we started has just become routine.

    Soda Cake...

    I made this recipe and baked them as cupcakes. They are great and only 1.5 Points per cupcake. Thanks for sharing!
  10. I love the new Banana Toffee bars. I also really like the smoothies. I always make them in the blender and add ice cubes so I get a large, frothy smoothie. I like to add different fruit or berries to the vanilla smoothie (pineapple is great). I find this is a great tasting way to get my dairies!

  12. TracyD, thank you so much for posting this recipe. I made these once years and years ago and then lost the recipe. They are wonderful! Thanks again! jj
  13. Weight Watchers does not count calories. It counts POINTS. You have your 24 POINTS every day. Then if you choose to eat 5 Flexpoints a day, you would be using 29 POINTS a day. Some members find that they lose quicker if they do not eat all their flexpoints each week. It's up to the individual member. I am sure your leader would be happy to go over this with you.

  14. I make veggie stock from all my bits and pieces that I save in a freezer bag. When I make the stock, I thaw the veggies and put them on a cookie sheet, sprayed with non-stick spray, sprinkle them liberally with fresh garlic cloves, salt & pepper and roast them in the oven for 20 minutes or so, until they are soft & golden. I have found that doing this before I boil the veggies gives me a richer tasting stock.
  15. Why not pay and use your "No Weigh Pass" early in the week and then you can attend as many meetings as you wish and get weighed later in the week.
  16. I have been peelng the zest off the oranges before I eat them now and putting the zest in the freezer. It's ready when I need it - jj
  17. I was not expecting them to be this good! I think the name sounds awful but they do taste GR8! Just like really good banana bread
  18. between proscuitto and pancetta? Or, could someone explain exactly what each is. Thanks, buddies! jj
  19. Schweetie, when you joined WW you should have received a "Welcome" booklet. There's a chart in that book that gives the official WW weight ranges, depending upon your age and height. Once you have reached your 10% you should meet with your leader and discuss setting another goal. Depending on how much weight you need to lose, you might set an interim goal or you might set your final goal. Once you reach your final goal and maintain it for six weeks, you will become a lifetime member! Congratulations on loss so far! jj
  20. I realize that you did not ask this but...have you ever tried making a WW Vanilla Smoothie with hot coffee? Just be careful when you are blending it together as hot liquid in the blender can be dangerous. I love mixing a packet of Smoothie mix with a couple cups of black coffee. It makes a big, delicious beverage! Just 2 Points.
  21. I think the only accurate way to figure it is to measure the amount of soup you have in the pot. It's a tedious task but then at least you will know. Do you know how many quarts or cups your soup kettle holds?

    WW for kids

    I think you should ask this question of your child's physician. Weight Watchers has a policy that children between 10 and 17 must have a written doctor's prescription; the doctor must set written goals for the child and the doctor must closely monitor the child's weight loss. No child under the age of 10 can join with or without a doctor's prescription.
  23. I'm not sure if this is what you have in mind but it's really easy and very good. One Spice Cake Mix One can apple pie filling. Beat the two together and bake in a bundt cake pan. I use a cake mix with the least fat I can find and pie filling made with Splenda.
  24. Crawfish, I would suggest that you go to a meeting and stay for the Getting Started Session. Your leader will fully explain all the details of FlexPoints then. When Weight Watchers makes changes, they do it to improve the program. They would not change the program to cause people to gain weight.
